Vitamin D Testing
Vitamin D Deficiency: Will you know when it’s too late? Sol Wellness Studios now offers a simple, convenient and accurate test for screening Vitamin D levels.
Many physicians are responding to recent research linking a variety of disease states and general wellness to Vitamin D levels. Vitamin D deficiency (levels measured below 32 ng/ml) does not have obvious symptoms and can increase your risk for more serious diseases including flu, cardiovascular disease, obesity, osteoporosis and multiple sclerosis. In addition, an increased risk for strokes, diabetes (types 1 and 2), depression, and breast and colon cancer are closely linked to low Vitamin D levels.
Vitamin D Testing Made Simple
Sol Wellness Studios now offers a refined Vitamin D test (both D2 and D3) in a simple dried blood spot test. A few drops of blood from a quick and nearly painless nick of the finger are placed on a filter paper to dry. This can be performed easily within the salon and sent out for analysis.
Results are returned in a week to 10 days and then the appropriate levels of Vitamin D therapy can be determined. As we continue to monitor your Vitamin D levels, we will generate a “history” test report with your newest test results compared with previous tests. This will enable you to track your treatment progress.
